Dell r210 rail kit

Hi,
I have couple of Dell r210 servers at home. I need to move them to data centre and need a rail kit.

I have come across Dell Part Number 0C597M
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380706990919&ssPageName=ADME:X:BOCOR:GB:1123

Can you update me if this will fit my dell r210 1u servers?

Thanks

Yes if you want static rails.

Strictly the 0C597M kit is built for the R210ll but it will fit your R210 U1 perfectly - the rail set for the R210 is 0W625M.  

The confusion is that Dell have separate codes for their manufacturers and their own part number codes - Dell's own part number code for the R210 static rail kit is 330-6301 and they list both the 0C597M kit and 0W625M kit  as P/N 330-6301 so although they have different manufacturers and were intended for different machines they are functionally identical.

For completeness if you want sliding rails for your R210 U1 you need 2 of 0C11M for the server and one each of Y819K and 0D419M for the rack.

Hi,
What is a difference between dell static and dynamic rails? I am new to these things.

Hi,
I am using these servers at data centre under co location agreement. I never have to go and get this machine out. Does that mean static rails will be fine?

Do I need just 1X 0C597M  to put 1 dell r210 server in a rack?

Thanks

Yes and yes, the 0C597M package contains a pair of rails  they fix onto the server and then into the sides of the rack (instructions are printed on the rails).  The slider versions have separate bits that fix to the server and rack (think kitchen drawer!)
